Title:
The Co-Existence of Superconductivity and Ferromagnetism in Actinide Compounds
Abstract:
Recently superconductivity has been observed in two different 5f-electron ferromagnets, UGe 2 and URhGe, well below their Curie temperatures. While superconductivity could be generic to all clean ferromagnets an alternative possibility is that it occurs in these materials, which were after all carefully selected for study, due to some special features related to the participation of strongly correlated 5f electrons in the ferromagnetism. 5f electrons potentially give rise to strong anisotropies,...    »
